About Jack Sholl

The research study finds that the assertion that the Hammurabi Code is an underlying document of the United Statesas millions of American high school students are being taught todayis not correct. The U.S. Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the founding documents of the United States.
The study challenges the claim by both legalists and religionists to the presumed importance of this ancient code to the foundations of American governmentnow and in the past. It warns that historical revisionism of this type poses a threat to U.S. national security at a time when American values are being challenged abroad, especially in the Middle East.
It finds no overall uniform oversight or coordination of parties at all levels involved in high school textbook content. The present system for fully reviewing textbooks and curriculaa combination of publishers, school boards, issue-blind teachers and academics, government and national security agenciesis not working. Unless corrected, the foundations of freedom and democracy and the Judeo-Christian spiritual values upon which they are built will continue to be seriously eroded in the nations high schools.

Pizza Stoners like Tommy, Rafeal, Edward and Grant live at home with their parents, never leave their room except for the most minimal of part-time jobs---antisocials lost in a blizzard of computers, TV, Internet technology, entertainment and porn all mixed together.
The Pizza Stoner, like his Japanese cousin, the Hikikomori, is the product of decades of economic recession, stagnation and despair--- the wasted generation of Japan--- not educated, unemployed, not trained or trainable in a society going nowhere. The symbol of this class is a Harvard PhD who waits on tables at a fast food restaurant with dim prospects for the foreseeable future.
Relevant to American society today, Stoner Pizza is a tragic, reflective, satirical and thoughtful look at lost dreams and opportunities and settling for less in the affluent country of America today.
Pig farmer Earl Scrubs loves everything in his life: his family, his home and his animals. The only problem is its in the center of the prestigious Palmetto Golf Country Club golf course where golfers must play through a pig wallow on the 16th hole.
Club receipts are down and something has to be done. The clubs president kidnaps Scrubs most prized possession, his famed prize-winning pig, and holds it hostage to force him to sell the land.
Disdaining the offer of a free lifetime club membership and preferring grilled pork chops to caviar and champagne, Earl challenges the club president to a winner-take-all match. A hilarious, comic sendup of high-status golf that places a pig farmer in a gentlemans game, the fate of the farm rest on its outcome.
Earl, who gets a crash course in the game from legendary mystical gold pro, thought he knew everything there was to know about golf but hes about to find out the game still has a thing or two to teach him about life.
Fine dining at home with family and friends is one of lifes true pleasures, yet the kitchen can be a dangerous place. Fire, electricity, heat, scalding hot water, smoke, sharp knives and culinary gizmos and gadgets all present dangers that would not go unnoticed in any environment other than the kitchen. Combined with wine and alcohol, its no wonder that accidental kitchen fires are the #1 source of home fires and fire injuries, with cuts, burns, bruises and choking incidents the leading reasons for hospital emergency room visits.
The Home Chefs Emergency Medical Guide is a useful kitchen companion for every home chef, whether he or she is toiling over a sizzling saut pan, wielding a razor-sharp Japanese chopping knife or blowtorching a crme brle. While not a substitute for professional medical treatment, this is a first-line guide to prevention and emergency care amid the mayhem that often occurs preparing a fine meal at home.
